Managing the highly resorbed mandibular ridge is a challenging job. Rehabilitation of a completely edentulous patient using a conventional complete removable denture is a routine clinical procedure, yet at times it can be a difficult and challenging one. Making an impression with available stock trays, even after modification is difficult in case of extremely resorbed ridges. In such cases, an innovative technique of making impression with properly adapted wire and silicone putty can be used to make a proper impression to achieve maximum retention and stability. This article describes an impression technique of highly resorbed mandibular ridge using an orthodontic wire, to gain maximum retention and stability.
